Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and draw on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible.
Alice strives to remain true to the woman she has always been, while relationships shift within her family, in her work and most importantly with herself.
Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease – its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.
Featuring British actress Sharon Small as Alice, this play is a unique insight into the experience of a woman fighting to maintain her identity as her world changes.
